I disagree with Tom Davidson. I did not find Dan M To be bashing scott. I think We want as much info on all running as we can get.

Yeah, I figured afterwards it wasn't going to read well. Especially with my sarcasm thrown in. I also assumed Mr. Monez was specifically talking about one candidate and not several different people, and for that I apologize. This patchy structure is really strange to navigate sometimes, but I'm glad I found this, uhh, thread, to clarify myself and to apologize to Mr. Monez (who, yes, did run in the past-and of course I should NEVER have associated him with other politicians who snipe at the victors in their races long after they've been sworn into office.). Regardless, even I knew that Mr. Sedgley's mother had died just from scanning local resources, I thought it was odd that nobody else bothered to know. Still. It's in the obits. I'm not making it up. But, yeah, maybe he just doesn't have e-mail. Yeah, that's gotta be it. Politics are always SO transparent that nobody's motives are ever questionable. But I wasn't attacking anybody. I AM kinda disapponted that it was more important to scold me than it was to verify the passing of poor Mr. Sedgley's mother (which I STILL haven't seen any mention of here and isn't THAT hard to verify). You wouldn't even need a TIME MACHINE ! I'm hoping that wasn't too offensive.... I guess there are priorities, and perhaps I've over-estimated this forum.

What about the people running for trustee at Napa Valley College - the college is in trouble and I would like to see what each proposes to do. Thanks

Mamasan- have you tried this website called politify? I saw it the other day, and it is a tool to see who's policies will benefit you. It is secure and anonymous. But I think it is pretty cool. I put in my own income, and then I put in in different incomes to see what tax brackets benefited from who. I thought you'd like it. https://www.politify.com/

the one I used asked to compare ideals and politically I am a Democrat and agree with President Obama. I also tried the ones with income.
